Baku, December 26, AZERTAC
Dozens of people are reportedly missing and feared dead after a landslide hit a jade mining region in Myanmar's northern Kachin state.
Officials say a search for survivors and bodies is continuing after Friday's accident in the area around Hpakant.
Last month, more than 100 people were killed in the same area after a massive landslide.
Jade mining produces piles of waste rock. Itinerant workers climb the heaps to search for the gem stone.
The Bangkok Post quoted Hpakant official Tint Swe Myint as saying five bodies had already been found.
"According to witnesses, about 50 people are still missing," he said.
